Keyboard-driven Californian pop-punks Army of Freshmen have announced details of their new “At The End of The Day” EP and confirmation of two UK support tours. The Ventura, CA six-piece will tour with their friends Bowling For Soup October 10th to 24th and then join Aquabats on the second half of the Good To Go tour.

In 2004 the band were invited to be surprise guests at the first show of Bowling For Soup’s UK tour at Manchester Academy. Their energetic performance was so successful, Army Of Freshmen were asked to appear as openers on a further two shows.

Following popular support slots with BFS in the United States, and demand from their rapidly growing UK fan base, they have been invited to appear on the Texans’ full 2005 UK tour.

The band recently signed a UK deal with Brand New Hero records, home of Littlest Man Band, and join the label’s Good To Go tour on October 26th. A selection of UK headline dates will be announced soon.
